Jasmine Womack is a former language arts Middle School teacher who taught for 12 years. She held various roles in the school, as a writing coach for the teacher’s leadership, among others.
Womack is now into coaching, writing, speaking and selling books, and recently earned over a million dollars on a single platform in her new endeavor. She now holds in-person courses to show others how to do the same so that they can share their skills and earn thousands as self-published authors.
Womack’s path to success has not always been smooth sailing. She had to overcome several obstacles in her personal and professional life to achieve success. After writing her first book, she learned to navigate and market with digital platforms and made $5,000 in pre-sales alone. This led her to host her own online workshop, offer business and coaching services and earn $125,000 within a year.
“I went full time into entrepreneurship and one day, I clicked into my Kajabi portal and saw in that outlet alone, that I had crossed the million dollar mark,” Womack told Face2Face Africa.
She earned up to $1.5 million dollars from writing, speaking, and coaching in other online spaces.
“This started out as me wanting to spend more time with my husband and children instead of being burned out from work and now, I feel as if I am breaking strongholds, shifting mindsets, restoring faith and helping people become the best versions of themselves while sharing their stories.”
Womack was named by Kajabi as a Top 10 Black History Month Hero in 2022 about a year after her book, ‘Published and Paid: Write, Self Publish and Launch Your Nonfiction Book In 90 Days Or Less’ was released.
As an executive coach and writing consultant, Womack noted that she doesn’t work with everyone. This is the reason she launched her free group Make An Empact on Facebook, and her paid Author Made Easy Bootcamp.
Womack was raised by her teen mother and stepfather. According to her, she has always felt a connection to writing and publishing, earning her the nickname ‘Harriet Tubman of the publishing world.”
While in college, she discovered where her ties to writing and publishing were coming from. She was told by a long-lost cousin that her great-grandmother, Mary Lena Lewis Tate, was one of the first Black women in the USA to own a publishing company.
“That was a defining point in my life because I realized the call on my life was already destined in my bloodline,” said Womack. “My ancestor created her publishing company to have material for ministry as she founded the Holiness Church. And here I am, all these years later, having been disconnected from that side because I didn’t know my father that well, still fulfilling her legacy and creating my own.”
Womack said that she encourages the people she works with to understand that their books and programs are not just about them doing something but creating a legacy for themselves and their families as she did for her children.
“It’s not just about showing people how to create their bankable books and products but about shifting their mindsets to see the importance of creating the life that they desire,” she said. “It’s about total transformation and leaving a mark.”
